Full Property Details

Woodscombe Farm is an impressive 6 bedroom country home, with a separate 2 bedroom cottage, outbuildings with further potential and approx 58 acres of land.

Woodscombe Farm is a fantastic small holding, located in a superb position between Exmoor and Dartmoor National parks. The current owner has extensively improved the property with works including a new master bedroom suite and kitchen extension. In addition to this, they have developed a 300m light aircraft runway and hangar. This really is a unique lifestyle property and offers a hugely versatile scenario for the new owner.

The approach into the property is by it's own private driveway, flanked on both sides by its own land. The property sits centrally within the 58 acres (approx.) of land, offering a particularly good degree of privacy, peace and seclusion.

The farmhouse provides spacious and versatile accommodation. There are a number of entrances into the property, the main front door leads to an inner hallway that gives access to all the main rooms and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room is a spacious dual aspect room with feature fireplace and inset wood burning stove. Across the hallway is the formal dining room, again with a feature fireplace and views out over the enclosed front garden. The modern kitchen/breakfast room is a real feature of the property with spotlighting and a central island. Adjoining this room is a south facing conservatory, built in the enclosed front garden and has a very pleasant outlook over the ponds. Also on the ground floor is a large utility room, shower room, office and third reception/laundry room.

On the first floor at the top of the stairs is what was formerly the master suite - a large dual aspect double bedroom with vaulted ceilings, plenty of storage and a recently upgraded en-suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom in the older part of the house. A hallway leads into the modern extension, that offers two large doubles, the new master suite with a walk-in wardrobe, and an impressive en-suite with a separate shower and a bath that makes the most of the views over the ponds to the countryside beyond.

The gardens of the farmhouse extend to the front, rear and side of the property. To the front is an enclosed south-facing area with a patio/entertaining area, lawn, and established borders. To the side are two large ponds, one leading into the other. This is a beautiful nature area and is currently home to a family of ducks. At the rear of the property is a circular driveway offering plenty of parking. Beyond this is a large lawn area, a great space for children to kick a ball around and have fun. To the side of this area are back-to-back garage/workshops and adjoining kennels.

A former barn that was converted in approx. 2000 is currently let at £740pcm. This is an ideal investment or could offer further potential for either dual occupancy or holiday letting (STPP). The accommodation is single-storey and comprises a kitchen/dining room, utility, sitting room, bathroom with a bath and a separate shower, and two double bedrooms. Outside, the property has the benefit of an enclosed garden with a patio and lawn area.

The outbuildings at Woodscombe Farm offer great further potential. The barn which adjoins the letting unit, was granted planning at the same time and although this has lapsed, it could well be reinstated. The accepted plans (lapsed) are available on request. This barn currently comprises of four stables, a tack room and a storeroom. Beyond the main house and barns, are a range of further buildings, just beyond the main garden is a potential garage/wood store and hayloft. This building would benefit from some upgrading and may even offer planning potential. Beyond this building are large interlinking modern farm buildings, currently being used for stabling, a cattle barn, and storage of farm machinery. Again, these buildings may offer further planning potential. A further large, modern farm building currently being used for cattle and further farm storage could certainly be adapted as an indoor arena perhaps, for those that have an equestrian interest.

A field away from the barn conversion is the aircraft hangar and temporary runway. This building and runway were created by the current owner and is used under a 28-day annual license. This would only be suitable for certain light aircraft and is also used for landing and storing a helicopter.

Mains electricity, private water, and drainage. LPG central heating.

Take the B3137 out of Tiverton heading towards Witheridge. Follow this road for approximately 8 miles until you come to Nomansland and turn left opposite the pub. Carry on down the hill and the turning for Woodscombe Farm is on the left, at the bottom of the valley.
